I’m not sure I understand the copyright notice requirements when using the Traffic APIs.
For traffic flow, are there copyright requirements at all? In the terms, it only says
Your use of any trade names, logos, trademarks, service marks and other marks of TomTom is subject to TomTom’s prior written approval. Any goodwill arising out of the use thereof shall inure to the benefit of TomTom. In addition, for any of the Maps API services which automatically generate a TomTom logo or copyright notice, you agree not to remove, obscure, mask or change any logo and/or copyright notice. For all other Maps API services, you agree to implement to the TomTom Copyright API in order to generate the applicable copyright and logo attribution.
So as I understand, for Flow, there is not such copyright API, correct?
For incidents, I seem to understand that some copyright information must be displayed and should be obtained through the viewport API:
- When the
copyrightparameter value is
true, this contains the full text of the copyright information that must be displayed with the tiles in the viewport.
- When it is
false, it indicates which copyright holders must be cited but does not list them out.
In the API explorer, coypright = true returns a URL to https://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/thirdpartyproductterms/
Am I expected to display this exact URL or should I refer to information on that page? It states there that one should display some copyright notices, based on coverage location. Is there API to implement this?
If I’m supposed to add this URL, is there some guidelines for when you need to display this data on a non-interactive screen? Something where you cannot click links.
Could anyone clarify?
Thanks in advance
